June 13th, 2012 – Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was asked what he will do if the Supreme Court Justices fail to overturn President Obama’s Healthcare reform law.
Romney responded, “Regardless of what they do, it’s going to be up to the next president to either repeal and replace or replace Obamacare,” Romney said. “And I intend to do both.”
“Free enterprise is the way America works,” Romney added. “We need to apply that to health care.”
Romney said that if he is elected and if the justices fail to completely overturn the Health Care Reform law, he will repeal the remaining pieces on his first day in office by granting waivers for every state to opt out of the restrictions.
Most often referred to as Health Care Reform or Obamacare, the law being reviewed by the Supreme Court is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which was signed into law by President Obama on March 23rd, 2010. A decision is expected from the Supreme Court Justices in late June.
